I have just virtualised our environment using Hyper-V and have installed a trial version of Veeam Backup and Veeam Cloud. We have an 8TB NAS for local backups and plan on using Google cloud for offsite.
I wanted to know what the best practice is for this kind of setup bearing in mind 1 full backup is about 600GB and incrementals are about 25GB using reverse incremental.
I'd like to go back about 6 months if possible, should i be doing full backups as well periodically? I am consious off the space this is likely to use, any suggestions to keep this to a minimum and still give me the backup plan i want?
